Richmond, Indiana – First Bank Richmond announced today that they made a significant contribution to an organization in our Shelbyville market in the month of September 2020; Leadership of Shelby County, through the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce, will receive a contribution in the amount of $1,000.
Since 1988, Leadership Shelby County has brought together hundreds of adult leaders. The graduates of Leadership Shelby County go on to use their expertise and experience in local companies, become active members of our civic and charitable organizations, and lead their local government agencies to enhance their community at all levels. With over 400 alumni, this program has had a significant community impact. 

“First Bank has been a tremendous supporter of Leadership Shelby County.  The bank’s financial support is critical to the programs ability to foster leaders in our community.  Additionally, the support of First Bank leaders sharing their experiences provides the program’s participants invaluable insights into challenges and lessons learned.  These sessions are consistently a favorite with participants.” – Scott Shepherd, Leadership Shelby County Facilitator
